The Korean skin care routine has taken the world by storm, and there’s no going back once you’ve tried it! It is a truly a superior way to care for your skin. You can see and feel the difference when you take a little more time to do what’s right!
Some people find the K-Beauty skin care regimen overwhelming at first, so we’ll be featuring a step-by-step guide over the coming weeks to explain how and why each step matters.
Let’s get things started with step one: Real Barrier Cleansing Water.
Cleansing Water is Atopalm’s version of an oil-based cleanser. It is a cleansing formula designed to be used without the use of tap water, which makes it excellent for very sensitive skin that doesn’t respond well to harsh tap waters.
Cleansing Water actually uses Atopalm’s MLE skin-barrier formula to cleanse skin, while a natural moisturizing compound replenishes moisture even as you cleanse! Panthenol, allantoin, and madecassoside make up Real Barrier’s three-calming complex, used to soothe and comfort skin.
Cleansing Water melts away impurities and debris, preparing skin for the rest of your skin care routine. It can also be used in the evening prior to your foaming cleanser to gently remove makeup without the use of harsh makeup removing formulas.
Finally, if your skin is of the most sensitive variety, you can use Cleansing Water in lieu of traditional cleansers. If your skin does not tolerate foaming cleansers or washing with water, Cleansing Water is the answer to your cleansing needs.
As you can see, Cleansing Water is a versatile product that’s great to have in your arsenal, whether or not you follow the entire Korean skin care routine.
